"A formally recognized equality does, however, accord the smaller nations a position which they should be able to use increasingly in the interest of humanity as a whole and in the service of the ideal."

Sophie Thompson Quotes

"Im not a natural reader but there are books Ill read and read again."

Julie Tetel Andresen Quotes

"A good part of the physical attraction [between the hero and heroine of a romance novel] comes to life during these exchanges as well, since language creates a meeting of the minds. I have long thought that these lines of dialogue carve out the lines of the central love relationship. The dialogue between the hero and heroine creates the central shape of the story. It is the verbal sculpture."

Linda Proud Quotes

"Glancing round to see that no one was watching, I sniffed at it. The leather binding, soft and supple, was pungent, but it was the pages that interested me. They smelt nourishing, like new-baked bread"

Sean O Nuallain Quotes

"Our view of the mind not only shapes our view of ourselves; less obviously, it also shapes our view of that part of our experience we conceive of as dealing with the external world. As we learn about the structure of this aspect of experience, we find that the world presents itself to consciousness only after being mediated to lesser or (more often) greater extents by mental structures and processes."

Quotes About Bitter Old Woman

"Depressions and melancholy are often a cover for tremendous greed. At the beginning of an analysis there is often a depressed state of resignation-life has no meaning, there is no feeling of being in life. An exaggerated state can develop into complete lameness. Quite young people give the impression of having the resignation of a bitter old man or woman. When you dig into such a black mood you find that behind it there is overwhelming greed-for being loved, for being very rich, for having the right partner, for being the top dog, etc. Behind such a melancholic resignation you will often discover in the darkness a recurring theme which makes things very difficult, namely if you give such people one bit of hope, the lion opens its mouth and you have to withdraw, and then they put the lid on again, and so it goes on, back and forth." - Author: Marie Louise von Franz

Quotes About Deer Hunting

"In a matter of a moment the amount of sand in the upper part of the hour-glass had dwindled dramatically, the tiny grains were rushing through the opening, each grain more eager to leave then the last, time is just like people, sometimes its all it can do to drag itself along, but at others, it runs like a deer and leaps like a young goat, which, when you think about it, is not saying much, since the cheetah is the fastest of all the animals, and yet it has never occurred to anyone to say of another person He runs and jumps like a cheetah, perhaps because that first comparison comes from the magical late middle ages, when gentlemen went deer-hunting and no one had ever seen a cheetah running or even heard of its existence. Languages are conservative, they always carry their archives with them and hate having to be updated." - Author: José Saramago

Quotes About Low Tide

"They trekked out along the crescent sweep of beach, keeping to the firmer sand below the tidewrack. They stood, their clothes flapping softly. Glass floats covered with a gray crust. The bones of seabirds. At the tideline a woven mat of weeds and the ribs of fishes in their millions stretching along the shore as far as the eye could see like an isocline of death. One vast salt sepulchre. Senseless. Senseless." - Author: Cormac McCarthy

Quotes About Life Journeys

"No, I have never had a problem finding books to read. But I have had a problem finding people who understand what its like to really LOVE reading. Maybe even need it. People who associate periods of their life with the kinds of things they were reading then, whether in school or in dusty old rooms of a house in Holland. The kind of people who take personal journeys into books and write responses that are part review, part stories in themselves. This is what Goodreads has always given me." - Author: G.R. Reader

Quotes About Nicholas Ii

"- Nicholas, daca vrem sa incercam sa reproducem, fie si numai partial, cate ceva despre legile misterioase care guverneaza existenta, atunci trebuie sa stim sa depasim unele din conventiile pe care omul le-a inventat pentru a tine in frau aceste scopuri fundamentale. Asta nu inseamana ca in vietile noastre obisnuite asemenea conventii trebuie ignorate. Nicidecum. Ele sunt fictiuni necesare. Dar in jocul de-a Dumnezeu, noi am pornit de la premiza ca in realitate totul este fictiune si, totusi, nici o fictiune nu este necesara. Zambi: M-ai dacut sa spun mai mlt decat aveam de gand." - Author: John Fowles

Quotes About Writing A Novel

"Many people are partial to the notion that . . . all writers are somehow mere vessels for Truth and Beauty when they compose. That we are not really in control. This is a variation on that twee little fable that writers like to pass off on gullible readers, that a character can develop a will of his own and take over a book. This makes writing sound supernatural and mysterious, like possession by faeries. The reality tends to involve a spare room, a pirated copy of MS Word, and a table bought on sale at Target. A character can no more take over your novel than an eggplant and a jar of cumin can take over your kitchen." - Author: Paul Collins

Quotes About Future Love

"While the resurrection promises us a new and perfect life in the future, God loves us too much to leave us alone to contend with the pain, guilt and loneliness of our present life." - Author: Josh McDowell

Quotes About Cambio

"Ambos siguieron atentos a los rumores crecientes sobre la gravedad de la peste, y aun contra sus deseos tuvieron que conversar otra vez sobre asuntos que les eran comunes, como en los tiempos en que se odiaban menos. Para él era claro. Siempre creyó que amaba a la hija, pero el miedo al mal de rabia lo obligaba a confesarse que se engañaba a sí mismo por comodidad. Bernarda, en cambio, no se lo preguntó siquiera, pues tenía plena conciencia de no amarla ni de ser amada por ella, y ambas cosas le parecían justas. Mucho del odio que ambos sentían por la niña era por lo que ella tenía del uno y del otro. Sin embargo, Bernarda estaba dispuesta a hacer la farsa de las lágrimas y a guardar un luto de madre." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
